I am interested in international law (particularly http://www.law.northwestern.edu/legalcl ... ternships/), but as a recent admit I don't have student access yet. Any help would be great! Were any brochures or documents given out during ASW that give more detail on employment besides the ABA numbers?
Don't worry about it right now. Everyone gets something for their 1L summer. It's so routine nobody bothers to track it. What you do your 1L summer, with a very, very few exceptions, will have absolutely fuck-all to do with what you do at any point subsequent to your 1L summer. If you want to do one of those externships and your grades are halfway decent, you'll probably be able to do them.
But really, don't worry about it right now. Worry about enjoying the last bit of your summer, and then worry about getting good 1st semester grades. Worrying about 1L summer right now is hysterically premature.
